Did You Know?


The movie takes place around a group of men returning to the Army for a refresher training month, in Sweden called "Repmånad". This type of training was normal for countries with conscription armies. Sweden reformed its army into a regular army in the mid 2000's and has not had a refresher training month since the late 1990's. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the initial credits, there's a picture in the background where the stars of the film place a Swedish flag on the ground in a goofy way, spoofing the "Placing the flag on Iwo Jima" monument. See more »

superb movie
15 February 2003 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. I think it's the best Swedish movie ever. What does that say about Swedish movies? Not too much actually.

If you appreciate the "Sällskapresan" movies you will definitely enjoy this film. Note that I am mainly talking to people living in Sweden. Not only is the film hard to obtain in other countries, but I don't think that foreigners will appreciate the jokes. (But if you like "Stripes" you probably will enjoy it!) Actually, there aren't that many jokes. The film itself is so humorous and sarcastic, and the characters are so happy and down to earth.

I love Lasse Åberg's image in these movies. You simply CAN'T dislike the man. "Too bad, he was a nice guy. But the fight for peace and freedom must go on!"

So take a chance. Rent "Repmånad" and join Löwgren, Gurkan, Tallroth, Jonsson and the other lovely guys as they make the lives of Commandant Larsson and Captain Nils "Beethoven" Jönsson miserable.

One good reason to watch this movie: You will know at least three new names for liquor! And always remember: There are two T:s in Tvetaberg. Take care
